Ariana Grande Reacts After Being Blamed For Mac Miller's Death

Mac Miller’s death raises suspicions as police finds his house scrubbed clean of drugs

One day after the shocking death of her ex, rapper and producer Mac Miller, Ariana Grande has finally reacted - and she did so without saying a word. No caption accompanies the intimate photo, and Grande disabled comments on the Instagram post. It's a simple photo of him sitting on grass, looking up at the camera - a pair of sneakers, presumably Grande's, are visible in the lower part of the photo.

In a statement about her breakup with Miller, Grande said there were times when the "toxic relationship" took its toll.

Miller's death comes several months after he ended a high-profile, two-year relationship with pop superstar Grande, who was often seen as the inspiration for his songs. 'There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time'.

"Shaming/ blaming women for a man's inability to keep his shit together is a very major problem", she wrote in a note posted to Twitter.

Grande and Miller first linked up back in 2012 and shortly thereafter recorded a tender cover of the Christmas classic "Baby It's Cold Outside", later pairing up for "My Way" before their relationship became public.

"This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favourite people on the planet", she wrote over a picture of them cuddling on the sofa.

Grande and Miller had dated for about two years before breaking up earlier this year. Substance abuse is something the U.S. musician had openly struggled with in the past, and his recent album, Swimming, features poignant lyrics about finding himself.

"I wish it started tomorrow", he said. His later work incorporated jazz elements and he was set to tour later this year with Thundercat, the wide-ranging bassist whose music has gone from experimental hip-hop to thrash metal.

He told Rolling Stone when the album came out: "Have I done drugs?"

Soon after their split in May, Ari moved on with Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson.
